Letter to the Editor

His Recognition Is Well Deserved

To the Editor,

I was happy to read in the April 14, 2023, Chelsea Record that longtime businessman Peter Zaksheski was the “recipient of a state Certificate of Appreciation honoring the excellence of his business (the Anthony Memorial—Frank A. Welsh & Sons Funeral Home) and his outstanding contributions to the community.”

I am proud to know Peter for many years. Peter Zaksheski is a true gentleman and an extremely caring person. His recognition is well deserved.

Peter Zaksheski has been an asset to Chelsea for many years, in particular to the Chelsea Fire Department. Every year the Chelsea Fire Department, on the first Sunday of June, celebrates its Memorial Sunday which is a remembrance of all the deceased Chelsea Firefighters especially for the current year. Peter Zaksheski, every year, donates plastic laminated remembrance cards which names all the deceased firefighters for the present year, citing their appointment date, promotion date(s) (if any), retirement date and date of passing. The back of the card includes kind words describing “What is a Fireman?”

I, and I am sure, all Chelsea firefighters, appreciates Peter’s generosity and empathy.

I  congratulate Peter Zaksheski, and his family, on his Certificate of Appreciation. 

Louis T. Addonizio

Retired Fire Chief
